THUKSOAY. .IL.I,Y 18, 18!K n h elks himselt is helped uy others. This is true of towns and communities as well as individuals. Confidence in home enterprises is what attracts capital. Let our people invent their money in manufactories ant where they put in one dollar, five dollars from abroad will seek to come in and tret a footing. This is the record of other towns and will be ours Hekk is what does a great deal to make times hard in this patt of the country, where little or no benefit is received in return for the burden of taxation put upon us. An exchange says: The country's annual pension bill may be reduced to $ 100,000,000, but it will not be in this century Neatly 600,000 applications for pen sions are now on file at Washington City and many new ones are adder to the number every week. Tiik A'aos and Observer's Public School edition, published last week, was a credit to that enterprising journal. It was 24 pages in size piofuscly illustrated and full of inter esting and valuable information relative to educational affairs in the State Such .1 publication is hound to give impetus to the feeling aready aroused and increasing yearly that is abroad in behalf of higher education. It would be well it a copy ol this paper could be placed in the hands of every man, woman and child of school age in North Carolina. Anknt the meeting ol the North Carolina Press Association at (Ireti: boro this week, the Charlotte Observer makes the following pertinent remark: The North Carolina l'ress Avvia lion will meet at CIreensboro Wednes day, the 17th, for a two day's sts ion, and will co then on an excursi ;: to Morchead City. There ought t ; .1 full attendance at the meeting. Ths- point is central and Cireensboro is nice town. 1 ne democratic, !....- lican, Populist and Prohibition oil tors should get togethether there I r a couple of days and see if they cannot do something to raise the newspaper business in North Carolina from ratio of 16 of work to 1 of compensa tion. North Carolina has attractactions for the immigrant and investor that are unequalled. If her citizens would all work together and endeavor to let the world know what we have, there would le a marvelous increase in her population in the next few years. We can do this in many ways, by letter writing, newspaper advertising, the sending out of descriptive literature in various forms, c. Hut in no way more effectually perhaps than by practical illustration, making a full and comprehensive exhibit of our industries and resources at the Atlanta Imposition. The railroads will aid in doing this. Let the people co-operate with them and North Carolina will be so well represented by her products and materials that we will all hav cause to be proud of it. The Review of Reviews, a gold bug magazine, has this to say of the financial condition of Mexico : In all candor, after some examina tion of the question on the ground, w must coniess ourselves unable to see mat juexico is placed at any serious disadvantage by her continued adher ence to the single standard. It is tru that the extremely high price of gold as measured in standard Mexican silver money, adds much to the burdens of the interest upon the foreign debt ; but Mexico is coming safely and soundly out of her financial perplexities of a few years ago, and it would appear that she has never enjoyed more prosperous times than during the past year. THE TAX Ox"l)KUGGlSTS. Righteous indignation has been stirred up by certain features of the new revenue act, that part of it impos ing a purchase tax on druggists espe cially. This matter was discussed at the meeting ot the State Pharmaceutical Association and a committee was appointed to investigate the justice and legality of the act. The Burlington jYews commenting on the subject says : Another abominable tax, this time on druggists, is now agitating the trade and county officials, which is a privi lege tax of 4 per cent, on all purchases of drugs, seeds, &c. No tax that has come to light is more grinding than this one. The bare idea of a man doing as necessary a business as a druggist having to pay a tax of 4 per cent, on all his purchases' It is preposterous. Four dollars on every hundred dollars' worth ol goods ! Vet that is the law, as enacted ba ilie last Legislature. WHAT OF THE .SOUTH? Frederick 15. Cordon thus writes in the Baltimore Southern Slates magazine: The eyes of the investment world are to day turned more inquiringly than eer before on the South, mate rially the richest section of North America. With the markets of Chris tendom opened and with the cometi lion of all countries to meet, the manufacturers of the United States plainly see that good dividends now depend on the close proxmity of the factory to the raw material and cheap power. Furniture factories seek the forests; flour mills travel Westward with the wheat fields ; metals will be worked near the mines; and those who spin cotton will inevitably spin it where it grows. So the South rich in cotton, coal, wood and iron, with equable climate and the minimum of living expense, becomes the cynosure of the manufac turer and the capitalist. To the Northern man, however, an admission of the South's material advantages in one thing ; the question of investment or residence there is quite another. The latter proposition involves so much relating to his comforts, his health, and to many other points of peculiar and important consideration, that it is the writer's object to briefly touch on some phases of Southern experience and to inci dentally enlighten any inquirer who may be looktng Southward. A NOVEL BEQUEST. A man recently died in Virginia who made a novel bequest to the town in which he lived. That he was a patriot, who believes the Fourth of July should be observed for the principles which it instills, is evident from a clause in his will. The Orange Observer slates the case. It says : The estate of the late Hon. Lewis McKenzie is valued at $10,000. In his will, which has been admitted to probate in the clerk's office of the corporation court of Alexandria, he bequeaths 200 to the city, with the request that the Mayor and city council invest the money and use the interest therefrom by employing a drummer and fifer to go through the streets on the Fourth of July, early in the morning, that Independence Day may always be remembered by an observance that invariably marked it in that town in his boyhood days. THE VIEWS OF A VETERAN POLITICIAN. Ex-Senator Jarvis has been a very prominent figure in North Carolina since 1S68-69 the most memorable of all bodies execpt the last, and the most venal and vicious when he and Plato Durham led so bravely and skillfully the little band that stood up against the plunderers, devourers and ers of law makers. This writer was editing the Raleigh Sentinel and s-nv much of what occurred. Men may differ as to Senator Jarvis's view on this or that question, but no can did, informed man will deny to him much political sagacity, large ex perience in public affairs, consistant devotion to North Carolina, faithful service to the people, real ability and saving common sense. That he made a good Governor was generally con ceded. This writer more than once took issue with him and criticised his course, but he had the approval of the people at large. His views on public questions are worth something. If any public man in the State knows much ot State-craft it is Senator Jarvis. He came from the people, is of the people and is for the people. That has been his creed and practice through the years. We refer to him now because of the opinions from him in yesterday's Messenger. We do not purpose taking up his views in general but refer to what he said on one or two points. He says the people now are "influenced less by the declarations of platforms than they are by the records and position of candidates." That appears to us to correctly represent the situa tion. The people are learning, are watching, are scrutinizing, are waiting biding their time. They have seen that platforms and planks have been easily disregarded, made a plaything, a mere wisp ol straw to be easily turn ed or wound. The people are alive, and it is now not what is said that shalle the test of character, but what is done. Governor Tarvis is correct again, we take it, in saying that if the Democrats "hope to win in 1S96 our platform must be in accordance with the people, and our candidates must he 01 that class ot men who the people be lieve will, in good faith, carry out its declarations. , . . . . - Quite a number of the Democratic newspapers in the State are out for the gold standard, against silver, against the Democratic law of 1892 and the state Democratic platform of 1894, and the recent action of the Democratic State Committee. Senator Tnrv.c minus this will make more difficult our chances of success in this State. It will make sure defeat. A divided anv- tnmg house, army, country or partv .... j never achieved victory yet. The party press is seriously divided on the money question. How can there be victory? It looks clear and right when Gov ernor jarvis says that he "would bring every Democratic Populist into the folds of the Democratic party and seek their aid saving the State from the curse of Republican rule, and I would not impose upon them any humiliating terms. In my opinion we will have to choose between silver Demnrrat-j and goldbug Republicans in this State m 1696. lhat will probably be ihe outcome. The people the Demrv-rat- ic people are overwhelming for the nonest money of the constitution both silver and cold. Unless w j unites solidly in a common cause against Radical control, there will be a return to power in 1S96 in North Carolina of the old hungry rule and ruin Panrr with their selfish, demagogic crv of " Anything to beat the Democrats." n ilmmgton Messenger.

That we of the South are not self reliant, relf-dependent enough admits of no argument. We depend too much upon the North and West for the very things we can and should produce at home. Read these startling figures and then reflect a little Having done this let us ask ourselves if there is any good reason why this money, or a larger portion of it at least, should not be kept at home. A recent writer, Mr. J. J. Abercrombie, says on this subject : Men of the South, I present you a picture to-day for your serious contem plation and earnest thought. What are God-given advantages of climate and soil worth to you if they are so used as to impoverish their possessors and enrich those who live outside its borders? The South sent to the West last year $1,000,000 for food supplies. Appalling! That sum invested in cotton factories and certain small industries would make this whole land glow with new life and bring to this people a princely revenue. To revivify your homes and section you need only employ the means at hand that are invaluable and indestructible. You hold the monopoly in cotton. The variety and value of your soil products are almost infinite. Your forests and minerals are simply bound less. With 20,000,000 population last year you raised 435,000,000 bushels of corn. Your capacity is 700,000,000 bushels. The production of that bulk of corn would stop the enormous flow of money from here to the Northwest. The $100, 000,000 sent from here retained among you would enable you to manufacture millions of dollars worth of cotton and give employment to thousands of your population. You may not utilize your advantages but your descendants will. They will not slumber forever as a blank in nature to you. Some unborn genius will awaken the South from her lethargy and from every hill top and valley, from every mountain side and plain, and from every sea and flowing stream will come boundless wealth.
